1) Advanced programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law: Stand up against extremism and violence (28 August – 01 September, The Hague)

“Combatting terror must never be used as an excuse for trampling on people’s human rights. We need to firmly ground all counter-terrorism policies and initiatives within human rights. Because when we protect human rights, we are in fact tackling many of the root causes of terrorism.” UN Secretary-General António Guterres, 25 January 2023

The thirteenth Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism, and the rule of law is calling all passionate students and professionals interested in making a difference in the fight against terrorism. Co-organised by the T.M.C. Asser Institute and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in The  Hague, this programme delves deep into the legal aspects of countering terrorism and violent extremism. Engage with leading academics and practitioners, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and gain insights into the evolving landscape of far-right political terrorism.
